Programme content

Unlock your leadership potential on this highly experiential programme, which will give you a deep awareness of your own leadership style and define what successful business leadership looks like to you.

The interpersonal and emotional dynamics of leadership take this course beyond the classroom, exposing you to a range of team experiences where you hone every aspect of your leadership ability.

  • What you learn

    Three key themes run through the programme, each developing a vital set of skills needed for successful team leadership.



    Self-awareness is a key attribute of effective leaders. Before joining the programme, you undergo a NEO PI-R personality assessment, giving you unique insight into your leadership style and the effect your approach may have on others.



    Understanding the process, design and dynamics of teams is a critical element of team leadership. Learn about the behaviours that build a collaborative and supportive team environment and develop your social awareness to successfully manage conflict.


    Delivering results

    Delivering results is the goal of every successful leader. On this part of the programme, you use your new social awareness skills and self-knowledge to build a skillset for delivering results through others. Achieve this through project planning, negotiation, coaching, influencing and action planning.
